MLB in 2023: The 25 Best Players

25. J.T. Realmuto

2022 Stats: 22 HR, 84 RBI, 139 H, 21 SB, .276/.342/.478

There is no better catcher in baseball than J.T. Realmuto. The three-time All-Star is coming off a Gold Glove year as Philadelphia’s backstop, and has been among the most consistent hitting catchers in baseball since entering the league in 2014. Realmuto’s athleticism sets him apart from other players at the position. He swiped a career-high 21 bags last season — the most by a catcher since 2000. Unlike other catchers, Realmuto has the speed to turn singles into doubles. Providing a strong bat while playing a premium position, there’s no underselling Realmuto’s value to his club.
